Rocky Bear and Bits & Bytes Farm owner - Elizabeth

This Web site was created to tell the stories of the Off-the-Track Thoroughbreds Bits & Bytes Farm has sold. The Mission of Bits & Bytes Farm is to help sellers (of Thoroughbred racehorses for sale) to find buyers who have the ability to transition these horses to new careers. We offer assistance and guidance to make sure the horses we sell are successfully placed. Our Success Stories are proof that Thoroughbred racehorses make great sport horses and family members when their racing careers are over.

When a horse is purchased with the assistance of Bits & Bytes Farm, we require the new owners to stay in touch and provide us with updates. These updates are posted on our Success Stories pages so that the sellers of the horses know that their horses are doing well and have not gone back to racing or been slaughtered. The sellers care about these wonderful Thoroughbreds and they too enjoy reading about their horses' successful new careers. They often call or e-mail to thank us for finding a home for a horse they bred or trained. To learn more about Bits & Bytes Farm and our mission please visit our Web site at: www.BitsandBytesFarm.com.

We received the papers on Moose. Impressive. I wanted to know his birthdate and now I know. Thanks for giving the trainer’s son our number so he can see Moose when his family comes down in April. We are cold here but Moose has a thick winter coat and a blanket.

Fast Commander – Same Horse, New Look

Fast Commander has really put on weight, in a nice sport horse way and looks so good. He doesn’t look like a racehorse anymore! Stephanie Elizabeth’s Note: It sometimes takes a few months for an OTTB’s system to adjust to a new lifestyle and feeding program. They take on a totally different shape and with…

Grab that “Chance” when You Find It!

Jim is absolutely in love. He just adores riding Chance. Chance seems to enjoy being ridden by Jim, too. They make a lovely soft picture together. I videoed them today, and while watching the video, Jim said, “How did I ever end up with such a nice horse?”

“Sage” is (at) Home on the Range

Home…Home on the range (in Texas)…..Sage is now finally here with me and he has a new best friend Tiger. Both of them are 4 year-old OTTBs and they are both beautiful fiery red chestnuts. You would think they are long lost brothers, because they are inseparable. They don’t leave each others side….even though they are turned out with three other horses. If you take one of them away from the other they whinny at each other it’s hilarious.
